Tasting Atlanta’s Rising Boutique Burger Wave

Where’s the beef? That is exactly what Atlanta locals are saying if the onslaught of new boutique burger restaurants sprouting up across the city are any indication. Each location makes their food fresh upon order so if you’re in a rush you may want to call ahead to avoid a wait. And if there’s truth to the saying “You get what you pay for” then hungry Atlantans are surely buying their way to flavor fireworks because there aren’t any dollar menus at any of these joints. With prices averaging $15 per person for the standard burger, fries and a drink, you better prepare yourself.

Even discriminating new year’s resolution vegetarians and gluten-free dieters don’t have to feel left out; these burger boutiques have a little something for everyone. Emphasizing modernity, local produce and dietary accommodations, there are even fancy designer milkshakes like the pineapple up-side down cake flavor, like mama used to make. With plenty of red meat and no meat options, satisfied taste buds are worth the pricey splurge. Next time you’re in Atlanta, be sure to drop by one of these three local spots:

Yeah Burger

Virginia Highland: 1017 North Highland Avenue, Atlanta, GA ·
West Midtown: 1168 Howell Mill Road Northwest, Atlanta, GA

The sandwich of the month isn’t the only thing only thing to say yeah to at this joint. The simple green salad with fresh herb lemon vinaigrette is a zesty dream.

Farm Burger

Buckhead: 3365 Piedmont Road, Atlanta, GA 30305
Decatur: 410b W. Ponce de Leon, Decatur, GA 30030

On a tight budget? Check out the $8.00 lunch special or $10 Daily Combo

Flip Burger

Midtown: 1587 Howell Mill Road, Atlanta, GA 30318
Buckhead: 3655 Roswell Road, Suite 300, Atlanta, GA

If a serious 5.5 oz. hanger steak, brisket, and short rib beef blend is heavy for your appetite, try the lobster roll for lighter fare.
